Mission Statement

Our Father's Table is a street outreach service to our homeless brothers and sisters. We are truly the definition of grassroots activism, going into the trenches to find and assist those in need. We have no paid staff and depend solely on caring members of the community to achieve our goal of giving a "Hand Up not a Hand Out" to the homeless population.

Description

OFT provides our homeless brothers and sisters with the tools and opportunities to help themselves by walking along side each of them through the process of getting their lives back on track. We become their friend. We gain their trust and we do not judge them. We remind they they are valid, they matter, and that we care about each and everyone of them. We encourage and help build them back up by continual positive affirmations and the Love of God. We work on mending the part of them that is broken. We believe once their core is healed, their self worth, self esteem and dignity is mended, then everything else falls into place. OFT does not believe in band aids, but on applying a permanent cure for each homeless individual that wants help. OFT attacks the root of an individuals problems, the reasons poor life decisions have been made, and empowers them to be a whole person. We pray for them and with them, and encourage them to lean on their faith and to know they are valid, they matter, and they are loved by God.

Our Christ based outreach programs and services are designed to bridge the gap between the homeless and local homeless assistance agencies with the goal of permanent supportive housing and a second chance at happiness.

Our Father's Table is a wonderful organization that I have had a chance to be a part of. I found the opportunity for Volunteer Director on VolunteerMatch a year ago (October 2015) and it has brought nothing, but joy into my life. Gina has a huge heart and passion for the homeless, which makes OFT so special.
